    I'm really indecisive so, I'm hoping to apply to Bristol uni next year and was wondering which engineering course I should choose. The first choice is Mechanical Engineering which is pretty basic. The other is engineering design it seems cooler as it has a year in industry. However engineering design only has 29 places, compared to nearly 200, which worries me. Should I risk it for a biscuit?

    In what sense do you think Mechanical Engineering "is pretty basic"?

    And the number of places indicates the relative popularity...
